Oh...and I was just looking for something to knit!

I know. You've seen it. The Spring Interweave Knits preview.
Look out.

Hello gorgeous! Made from pattons classic wool! I am going to buy the yarn today!

Beautiful. I am not sure about the practicality of the front. Wouldn't that flap open...but I love it!

Yes, so gorgeous. I can't see the front...I am really hoping for a v looks to be so. LOVE IT!

Loving this as well. Made from Lion Brand! Love the cables.
Oh, and I have to make this. I think I have the perfect tweed for it!
This is also may weight a ton!

Anyway, back to the knitting at hand....wouldn't this make a gorgeous sleeve to a sweater?

34 sts in 4" would just take forever to knit! But, it is not a sleeve, it is a sock. Here is the interesting heel flap and turned heel. Not very durable...but lovely I think.

A couple of questions were asked from my wonderful readers. The needles I always use, for practically everything I knit are addi turbos. I knit very tightly and I get too much of a grab on bamboo needles, so addi turbos are perfect for me. I do hate their blunt tip though. Especially in this pattern trying to knit into the back of the second stitch...almost impossible with these suckers.
Also, how do I like the Regia silk? So far, it is beautiful yarn. Soft, elastic, warm. How durable will it be, not sure. I am sure it will pill, but look at how wonderfully it knits up!

Wow--I'm all over that Sunrise Circle jacket! Looks like your knitting list gets longer every day! But with your knitting speed, I'm sure you'll plow through it in no time. :)

My essential stripe was knit with pattons classic. It was nice to work with, especially for the price!

I really like the IK Spring preview, too. The aran rose is so cute, I look forward to seeing you knit it.

Those socks are looking gorgeous. How are you liking knitting socks top down? Also, do you usually go with US size 2 (3mm) or 1 (2.5mm) addis? I always get myself in a bit of tizzy as I can't decide to go a little bigger or a little smaller than the usual US size 1 (2.75mm) I never knew that .25mm difference would bother me so much.

Thanks for the preview. I love the tunic!

And, as always, the socks are fab!
